Hi,

We are planning on relocating to Orange County.
We want to live in a place that is central to Los Angeles and Irvine(because of job reasons).
Factors :
. reasonable city environment - shops, theatres etc
. indian grocery stores close by
. rent range : about 1500 for a 1 bedroom.
.
We are not particular about staying very close to the beach.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Where in LA? Downtown?

The Cerritos/Artesia area is the center of all things Indian in SoCal and although its more or less equi-distant from downtown LA and Irvine, its not really close to either. Then again, those two locations are so far apart, there really is no place that's close to both. You can't really move anywhere in SoCal that isn't urban and close to shop, restaurants, theaters, etc.

If you want Indian, the city for that is Artesia, but Artesia has some nice areas and some not so nice areas. Neighboring cities of Lakewood and Cerritos are nice though and offer the amenities you speak of. You may want to check La Palma as well.

Thanks esccali.
Unfortunately, I have to look for cities within Orange county.
Some places that I researched equidistant(not necessarily exact) :
Cypress,Beuna Park,Fullerton,La Habra ,La Palma,Los Alamitos,Seal Beach,Stanton

Which do you think is a good bet?

Thanks bhcompy.
Guess La Palma comes under Orange County.
Does it have some good and bad areas as well?
Great guidance, thanks so much.

Los Alamitos, Cypress, Seal Beach, and Fullerton are the nicest cities listed. Buena Park, La Habra, and La Palma are a notch down although I'm sure you can find nice areas in each. The only one I'd take completely off that list is Stanton.

Seconded, though Fullerton has some not so nice areas. Buena Park has nice and not nice areas(quick drive shows you which is which), La Habra I'm not too familiar with, and La Palma is fairly small, but has some nice areas. Stanton is not good.

For La Palma: As far as rentals go in your range, anything off La Palma or Orangethorpe would be great and generally close to shops. The nearest major shopping center is Cerritos Towne Center, which is close to the border of La Palma and Cerritos.

Anyways, why must you remain in Orange County?

I was wondering that too.

Also, where specifically is the job in Los Angeles. Downtown? Century City? Woodland Hills? Sherman Oaks? Westwood?, etc.......

Los Angeles is an enormous city and we may be recommending cities really far from the job in L.A. Do you know which neighborhood/area/ or cross streets the job is in L.A.
